ROSLER IN­FLU­ENCE PERSUADES GRANT

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

CON­TIN­U­ING to work with man­ager Uwe Rosler was just too good an op­por­tu­nity to turn down ac­cord­ing to Bobby Grant, af­ter sign­ing a two-year con­tract ex­ten­sion at Fleet­wood.

Grant’s deal was due to run out at the end of the sea­son, but he will now be a mem­ber of the Cod Army un­til the sum­mer of 2019.

The 26-year-old has been a striker or at­tack­ing mid­fielder for the ma­jor­ity of his ca­reer but has been de­ployed at the heart of the mid­field by Rosler this term.

The former Rochdale man is en­joy­ing his new role and claims the en­v­i­ron- ment around the club makes it a fun place to be.

“I’m very happy to be part of what we are creat­ing here,” said Grant. “The dress­ing room this year has been fan­tas­tic.

“I said as long as I’m on the pitch, I don’t mind where I play.

“For me, play­ing in mid­field and in as many games as I have, with the qual­ity that we’ve got, makes me de­lighted.

“The man­ager has given me a chance and he was a mas­sive part of the de­ci­sion. I’ve played most of the games and I’ve re­ally en­joyed the style he wants us to play.”
